hey there

I’m Nki – an on-location, natural light, family portrait photographer specializing in indoor and outdoor family sessions.

Based out of Brownsville, Texas, I serve Cameron County and surrounding areas.

Cool story: I was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to the U.S. with my family when I was 9 years old. One of my aunts who lived in New York at the time played and won a travel lottery for us (how neat is that!) and it was a life-changing gift.

Fun fact: my full name is Nkiruka. It means “the best is yet to come.” I LOVE my name, yet I’ve found “Nki” (sounds just like “Inky”) is a quick, easy nickname kids and adults remember.

Bonus: I married my college sweetheart and we’re staying sane while raising three rambunctious boys, ages 6, 4 and 2.

Our home is filled with laughter and snuggles complete with “this kid is for sale” meltdowns to balance it all out and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

style + substance

My secret power is turning family life (and love!) into timeless art.

My photography style can be described as simple, vibrant and real.

I began proactively documenting my littles when I was expecting my third.

I needed to slow time down and capture my growing boys as much as I could.

#BestDecisionEver

I never get tired of seeing their faces on our walls or re-living a special family event through an album.

It’s a daily reminder of the good times and the love my family shares.

I’d be honored to do the same for you!

Whether you’re spending the day at the beach or chilling at home baking cookies, I’m your girl!

Your family’s story is worth telling – it’s worth remembering.
